Materials Science in Semiconductor Processing ( is currently running a Special Issue entitled "Fundamentals of phase-change materials: synthesis, characterization, devices and modeling" with Mattia Boniardi, Antonio M. Mio and Wei Zhang serving as Guest Editors. Contributions should deal with fundamentals of PCM for current and future devices, including but not limited to investigations about optical properties, structural properties, resistance drift, thermoelectric phenomena, doping, element migration, endurance and thermal cross-talk. The collection should provide a portrait of the state-of-the-art by means of materials synthesis and characterization, theory and modeling, device fabrications and integrations.

We encourage you to send contributions in this framework. You may either write a short overview/review article or submit your latest original results as a research paper. The accepted papers will be published on an ongoing basis and simultaneously grouped online on a dedicated special issue page.

We hope to spark your interest and look forward to receiving your manuscript soon. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards, the Guest Editors

Mattia Boniardi, Antonio Massimiliano Mio, Wei Zhang
